In a classic demonstration, bolts are tied to a string. The spacing of the bolts is as shown
above. The assembly is picked up by the right end and dropped vertically onto a metal pie pan.
Students can clearly hear the sound each bolt makes when it strikes the ground. The time
between each sound (increases, decreases, remains the same) as the string falls. Explain.
32. The amount of weight in the air decreases as the string of question 31 falls. Does the rate at
which the string accelerates downward change as a result? Explain.
33. Tom wants to fire his gun on the Fourth of July. To avoid hurting people, Tom plans to fire
his gun straight upward. Why is this not a good idea?
34. When a ball is thrown straight upward and air resistance is ignored, the speed of the ball when
it is h meters above the launch point moving upward is the same as when it is h meters above
the launch point moving downward. The time the ball takes to reach its maximum height is the
same as the time it takes the ball to fall to its original height from the maximum height. Air
resistance is a force that is always directed in the direction opposite the ball’s motion. If air
resistance is taken into account then the time the ball spends falling is (less than, equal to,
greater than) the time it spends rising. Include a convincing argument to support your answer.

The four position vs. time graphs shown above illustrate how the shape of the graph varies with
the sign of velocity and acceleration. A curve like the one in the graph on the left is said to be
concave downward. It has a shape like an inverted bowl. A curve like the one in the graph on
the right is said to be concave upward. It has a shape like a right side up bowl. Generalize
these examples to come up with a rule that relates the shape of a position vs time graph and the
sign of the acceleration.
